Environmental Justice in Rural Virginia

UPDATE: Though this video was produced the summer of 2020, environmental injustice issues continue to persist in communities across the watershed. Since the production of this video, gas infrastructure in rural Virginia has faced setbacks and strong local opposition. Still, it’s more important than ever to support the people of Charles City County and other communities threatened by these proposals.

Hear from the people of Charles City County, Virginia, a rural community east of Richmond being targeted for two large new natural gas plants and a pipeline expansion. CBF Environmental Justice Staff Attorney Taylor Lilley is working with partners and the community to ensure their voices are heard and to prevent pollution and other threats to clean water from these proposals.
